The vehicle provides a protection against firing of small arms 14.5mm AP and 3 kg of explosive (8kg optional). The engine and the driver and commander's compartments in the forward area utilize about half of the space, while a weapon station opening located on the right middle section, and the personnel compartment in the rear, utilize the remaining half. The troop compartment at the rear of the hull accommodates eight seated infantry. Access to the vehicle is through a hydraulically operated ramp, with personnel door, on the rear of the vehicle or through the driver and commander's hatches on the top deck. A large cargo hatch cover is provided in the top deck behind the weapon station opening. Two armored fuel compartments are located in the rear of the vehicle for weight distribution and crew safety.
